Representative Lisa Subeck’s Statement on Obergefell v. Hodges Decision
"Today’s ruling brings long-awaited marriage equality for all committed and loving couples in our state and across the nation."
MADISON – Representative Lisa Subeck (D-Madison) released the following statement in response to today’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling that state prohibition of same-sex marriage violates the U.S. Constitution.
“At long last, who you love will no longer determine whether you have the right to marry and form a family. Today’s ruling brings long-awaited marriage equality for all committed and loving couples in our state and across the nation.
While today we celebrate this victory for same-sex marriage, we must continue working for equal rights, beginning with the removal of Wisconsin’s discriminatory ban on same-sex marriage from our own State Constitution.”
